River rally held to raise money for Safe Haven

Posted: Updated:
RHEA COUNTY, TN (WRCB) -

Organizers with "Safe Haven" offered a day of fun for a good cause.

The event kicked off with a golf tournament and ended on the river for a rally.

It's all to help children in Rhea County needing temporary placement from their unstable home environment.

"Safe Haven" can house up to 10 children at a time, ranging from ages eight to 14.

Saturday's festivities raised over $10,000 that will be used for  food and supplies to stock the home.

"What we are trying to provide is a care facility where kids can be housed here in Rhea County so they stay in an environment they are used to," says Gary Vennice.

For more information, check out the Safe Haven website.
